My 59-Year-Old Mom Went to Madewell, H&M, and More to Find These “Unusual” Items
You might be semi-familiar with my mother, Nancy. If not, she’s an almost-60-year-old Midwesterner who’s into fashion but favors an uncomplicated approach to style to work within the timeless wardrobe she’s been curating for years. I recently tapped her to reveal the easy fall 2019 trends she’s been incorporating into her closet. But because I know she has more to say (she always does…), I found it appropriate to continue our fall-shopping conversation right now.
She recently visited me in Boston, and we made it a point to stop in all of her favorite stores (in addition to hanging and shopping online) to build her fall wardrobe. Oh, for reference, her go-to stores happen to be Anthropologie, Madewell, H&M, and Club Monaco.
Her overall response after perusing the fall offering in each? “I love going to these stores because I find more unusual items that ‘cool girls’ wear. You know, those classic but slightly different things not everyone in my hometown will have.”
Okay, let’s get straight to the good stuff. Go on to uncover the fall staples my mom is jazzed about and why. (Some she bought, and many she’s thinking about buying.) As you keep scrolling, you just might find a special piece (or five) that could work for you as well—no matter your age. Because after all, your age really has nothing to do with what you should buy and wear.
Finally, fair warning, you’re going to spot (wink, wink) a lot of leopard print ahead. But hey, it’s one of my favorite trends as well—like mother, like son.
